Kirstina Leonard vs. Caitlin Giesen
While the flyweight prospect started her career in mixed martial arts less than a year ago, Leonard has already generated a solid amount of buzz surrounding her potential. The Nebraska native has won all three of the bouts she's stepped in to fight, with all but one of those victories coming by way of finish.
That said, in order for Leonard to move closer to bigger things she'll need to topple an opponent with established chops, and Caitlin Giesien certainly fits that description.
Where Leonard has recently started to spark excitement, Giesen's been making her name from South Dakota all the way to Nebraska. One thing for sure this Saturday night is the hype will be proved real on one side or the other, and that's MMA drama at its best
When it comes to rattling some cages at a young age, Kaleb Neugin certainly has experience.
The top-ranked prospect has been dispatching tough competition every step of the way and has built a flawless record throughout his first seven bouts in the amateur ranks. A split-decision victory over an always game Emeka Ifekandu back in 2015 was his toughest test and closest fight to date, and Neugin won't be looking to duplicate that friction on Saturday night.
At Dynasty Combat Sports 36, the 21-year-old featherweight will face Jared Tallent and look to best a fighter with nearly double the experience. Those scenarios are true tests where prospects are concerned, and Neugin isn't built to avoid a strong challenge.
The 21-year-old lightweight is in the finishing business and business has been good.
McKeeman has faced five men inside the cage and put all five away inside the distance. That's an impressive feat for a fighter just getting started in the amateur ranks, and McKeeman will be eager to keep that momentum building in Kearney. On Saturday night, he'll face Matt Schartz and will look to add one more impressive submission or knockout to his growing list of victims.
